RE: Route into Buena Vista Co. then to Wy.

Last fall we did 91 out of Leadville to Copper Mt, then I70 to 9 north at Silverthorne to Kremmling on way to Granby in a 26 ft Class with a V8. We didn't have any problems. When we left Granby, we took 125 all the way to WY and then 230 to I 80, 20 miles east of Rawlins. It was all a good road. At Kremmling, you could take US 40 west toward Steamboat Springs, then pickup 14 to Walden where it meets 125. I have never been that route, just a suggestion.

RE: Questions Re Cataloochee Campground in GSMNP

How big is your RV? I have only driven there coming in from the south on Cove Creek Rd. We left the MH at the CG and drove the Wrangler It is narrow and crooked with some gravel section inside the park. If you have a big 5th wheel or Class A it may be diffcult. I could drive my 26 ft C back there just hope I don't meet anyone. Many places someone would have to back up. What I saw in the CG where pop ups and small TT. Don't want to scare you just wanted to make you aware. Every driver is different, some would never attempt it and others wouldn't think twice. Google map it to see. Enjoy your trip. Cataloochee is my favorite place in GSMNP

RE: Charleston WV Toll Roads

I will be coming from Columbus Oh, entering Charleston area via US-35 to I-64, I plan on getting on I-77 / I64 heading south after crossing the river, then continuing onto 60 (Hwy 60?, I-60?) at Exit 96 towards Belle, and continue on towards Lewisburg, WV. First, I much prefer secondary roads to the interstates. Traveling east from KY to VA, I took the US 60 route above in our 26 ft Class C. We wanted to see the New River Gorge bridge. Pros, scenic route Kanawha Falls, Cathedral Falls, and New River Gorge Bridge. Cons, curves and hills. In 4 seasons and 30K miles of driving the Class C, that was the most tiring drive I have had. I would drive in a 30-35 MPH crosswind in South Dakota again over that drive. If traveling in that area in the future, I will pay the tolls and make better time and stay on I-64.

RE: A couple of distilleries in early April

Check out Taylorsville Lake State Park. Less than a hour to Frankfort or Bardstown.

Best route to Helen Ga from Kentucky

Planning a trip to Helen Ga in the summer in a Class C towing a Jeep Wrangler. I have driven the motor home, without the Jeep, to Blue Ridge GA by US 74 from I75 at Cleveland TN to Ducktown TN and the south to US 76. It looks like the two options from the north is either to Blairsville GA and US 19 to GA 348 (Richard Russell Scenic Hwy) or Hiawassee GA and GA 75/17 (Unicoi Turnpike) south. Is one way better than the other? Anyone have any experience driving TN 68 from Sweetwater to Ducktown.

RE: Campground suggestions near Fort Knox Ky

Check out the Kentucky Bourbon Trail while you are there. You will be close to Jim Beam distillery in Clermont and the distilleries in Bardstown and Louisville. The stops on the trail in Louisville are all down town, so parking for an RV might be hard to find. Louisville Slugger Museum and the Ali are also in Louisville.

RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

The quiet side of the Smokies to me are Maggie Valley and Cataloochee on the North Carolina side and Townsend on the Tennessee side. Less developed and crowded than Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge. Several campgrounds in both areas. Have never stayed at any so I can not recommend any.

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

2x Fort Welikit in Custer. Stayed there the first of October with the daughter and granddaughters. The girls loved the fort and the deer and turkeys wandering the campground. Staff and facilities were great. I would stop at Devils Tower on the way to SD. If you have kids, 2 things I would recommend are the Mammoth Dig in Hot Springs and the fish hatchery in Spearfish. The Spearfish City campground is next to the fish hatchery and is a nice campground we have stayed at before. Wall Drug is a couple hour stop. If you not hiking, the Badlands is a half day visit. We enjoyed the trip so much we want to go back in the summer with better weather.
